Watch him carefully. We spend all our time chasing the puck in our zone when he is on the ice. This guy no longer helps the Wings as a player. He needs to hang them up.

He's our enforcer, and shootout ace.

We'd also be stuck with a $2M cap hit for the rest of the season, when we're already $2.4M over the cap :)


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

So last night that had nothing to do with the fact that he was on a line with the great Cleary and young pup Sheahan? I would take Bert and what he brings over cleary,sammy,eavs,emmerton...any day. It's preseason.

Then we'd have no size up front.

Bert has plenty to offer still....we'll want him during the shootout and the first time Orpik or Phaneuf lays out a speedy newbie forward of ours.

I just don't get it why people want to get rid of all the size we have. Get even more weak on the puck and soft. Next you will see a thread to please trade E-rock off of the team. I'm waiting.

oh no, you mean bert couldn't do anything on a fourth line that won't even exist come the regular season? cut him.

 

i like bert as much as anyone but really though, I don't really see a spot he fits until injuries occur.. he's not a fourth liner and unfortunately for him, we have better options for our top 6.

If we need an enforcer, Tootoo has bee showing this preseason that he is at least better than Bert.

The way he played last night looked to me like it had little to do with being paired with those guys.  It looked to me like his back was still pretty badly f***ed up.  He usually uses his strength to hold off opponents with his hips or elbow, but last night he did neither of those.

Like Franzen or Bertuzzi use their size.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

Big Bad Bert isn't done.  He's big, scary and can still make moves out there, like Hillbilly said I'd take him over a handful of players we currently have under contract....That being said this is probably it for him.

I found bert to have some legs last night and to be playing fairly well.

If we don't have bert, who will keep other teams from playing ping pong on our tables? ><

I could find you at least 6 guys off of last nights roster that played like crap AND are not coming off of a serious back injury. Give him some time. You will be glad that he is on the ice when ****** bags start slapping Pav and Z around.

bert is a year from retiring(my guess) and pitches in when he is needed, franzen pitches in when his ass is on fire from the coaching staff and or he feels like it.

I thought Franzen played good last night... he showed more effort than most.  Even got a some PK time.

Bert is done, but he will be on the team until he gets hurt again. After this season he is one of about 5 guys that will be gone. Wish him well in his future.
